M. and I saw Mabou Mines production of Ibsen’s A Doll’s House at the Walker Art Center recently. This was not your grandmother’s Ibsen. In this version, director Lee Breuer has cast dwarf male actors against statuesque actresses. Much of it plays as a melodramatic comedy. If you have a chance to see this production, it is doubtful that it will be the one I saw as Breuer and crew are evolving the play from performance to performance.
A long time ago, I played Torvald in a production of A Doll’s House at a Junior College in Virginia, Minnesota.
